Sonic Youth And John Zorn - South Bank Show - Documentary - 1989 (ProShot DVD)

Thanks to cEnda for sharing another excellent DVD.

Directed by Charles Atlas. Overall length is 53 minutes, approximately 24 of which are devoted to Sonic Youth.
Made by for an excellent BBC arts program in the UK called "The Southbank Show".
Never released on video. The program does air without commercials on PBS and Bravo,a cable-only channel in the U.S.
Shows "the influence that environment or location has on music (in this case, New York City.)"
The title is supplied by Glenn Branca during the film.
The film has pieces on: John Zorn (includes a live performance by Spy Vs Spy at the Knitting Factory);and Sonic Youth.
The last medley is of real interest; it suggests that the entire performance was recorded and then edited down.
That medley have also alternate footage of the Sugar Kane video clip, not included in the "Screaming Fields" version.
This version was recorded how was broadcasted on the BBC TV ,in complete form.
Others broadcasts talks about more artists included (Ambition Lovers and Hugo Largo), but the final credits don't make any mention of that artists.
Appear that ones was including in another chapters of "The Southbank show" saga.

Sonic Youth - Bang-Zoom Tapezine #7 (1986)

Another great share by Egg_Crisis-

Tracks 4 & 5 don't sound like Sonic Youth, so are probably one of the other bands
featured on the tapezine.

192kbps mp3.  Transfer done years ago (2003 maybe) before I knew anything about flac
and unfortunately I don't have the tape.
It's been EQ'd in soundforge to remove some of the hiss and doesn't sound as bad
as the tape did.

Thurston - guitar
Kim - bass
Lee - guitar/vox (sometimes)
Steve Shelley - drums

Thanks to Egg_Crisis for sharing another of his masters.

Cassette(Master,TDK D90) > wav > Soundforge(normalise) > CDWave(split on sector boundaries) > flac(6)

Tape flip after Our Summer, missing the opening seconds of In The Meadow... I mucked it up, I should have turned it over during the encore break after In The Meadow.

Unlike other gigs from this period they didn't use an intro tape for this gig.  The audience were in a very exuberant mood that night, there's lots of weird stuff being shouted out and I think Julianne was getting annoyed by the end.

During some of this recording there's a weird swishing sound which is presumably caused by tape deterioration, but it only becomes really noticeable During Our Summer & In The Meadow.  The swishing seems to come with each full rotation of the tape, as if one half of the reel has deteriorated more than the other. (If you look at the waveform spectrally you can see it going up and down.)  I've never had a tape do this before, but possibly it's because it's a tape I'd reused, and re-used tapes often don't seem to survive as well as recordings made to a new tape.  Luckily it was a TDK, and it'd only been used once before so it didn't suffer as badly as London Astoria 1988.03.27.

According to there's a version of this gig circulating ... but the setlist doesn't match, so I think that the other version is a mislabelled gig.

01 Every Angel
02 Gypsy Dance
03 Wild Hearted Woman
04 Never Promise (Anyone Forever)

Comments: The Sisters Of Mercy playing live in Gothenburg on their 30th anniversary tour in 2011.
Venue was sold out since long time ago.
They played as main event of the evening, when i got in the support was halfway into their set (security took their time with patdowns).
No idea who they were and according to my ticket there was no support.
Location taping approx 2 metres from left stack. Sound was very loud and very good, crisp crystal clear, cudos to their soundguy.
Some claps whistles and hollering but mostly between songs, as any liveshow should have.
A little over the 90 minute mark recorded from the sisters, enjoy!
